Does anyone know what top tier players think of elixirs, and when, if at all, they choose to buy them?

AFAIK they're purchased quite often. Any time you feel like significant team battles are brewing, elixirs are a good buy.

I've been wondering about myself. I've only ever bought health pots and an occasional oracle. I feel like I've been missing out on some tech.

They're definitely solid. For example fort pot on shaco with lizard buff is almost a sure lanekill.

Buying 1 or 2 elixirs while being at base when you've got some money left is extremely common.

I suggest you all abuse them, they're good. Always having, for exemple, an elixir of brilliance for TF during all game can totally change your early / mid game.

But of course they lose their interest in late game state.

i disagree with above, late game elixirs are also very strong. since you'll have lots of money left over and likely a couple free slots its never a bad idea to up your AP or crit chance etc., its a lot bigger than you think.

A few games with Rammus have lasted 45 mins+ because neither teams had the upper hand, grabbing all 3 elixirs really lets you push that bit harder, especially if you get baron too.. I've won 2 games like that at least.

If you still have a slot, yes. If not, no point in replacing it with another durable item.

I think I didn't made my point clear, because late game for me is when you've got 6 items, but It's very late game so. Sorry, my mistake.

If you have all 6 items there's no point sitting with 3k gold in the bank. Sell your boots, buy/use elixirs and re-purchase your boots
